1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not
walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.
2 For the Law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and
3 For what the Law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by
sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh; and on account of sin, He condemned
sin in the flesh,
4 that the righteous requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk
according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
5 For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but
those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.
6 For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the Law of God,
nor indeed can be.
8 So then, those who are in the flesh are not able to please God.
9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you.
Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.
10 And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because
11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised
Christ from the dead will also make your mortal bodies alive through His Spirit who
dwells in you.
12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors; not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh.
13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death
the deeds of the body, you will live.
14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
15 For you did not receive a spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit
of adoption by whom we cry out, Abba, Father.
16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,
17 and if children, then heirs; heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we
suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.
18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared
with the glory which shall be revealed unto us.
19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons
20 For the creation was subjected to vanity, not willingly, but through Him who
subjected it in hope;
21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into
the glorious liberty of the children of God.
22 For we know that the whole creation groans and travails together until now.
23 Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves
groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.
24 For we were saved by hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still
hope for what he sees?
25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we
should pray as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings
which cannot be uttered.
27 Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He
makes intercession for the saints according to God.
28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those
who are the called according to His purpose.
29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His
Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also
justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.
31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not
with Him also freely give us all things?
33 Who shall bring a charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies.
34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, but rather is also raised, who is
even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall affliction, or distress, or
persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written: For Your sake we are killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep
for the slaughter.
37 Yet in all these things we more than conquer through Him who loves us.
38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers nor powers, nor
things present nor things to come,
39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the
love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
